“Beg my pardon immediately,” said Miss Minchin.

“I will beg your pardon for laughing, if it was rude,” said Sara; “but I won’t beg your pardon for thinking.”

Sara Crewe from A Little Princess, by Frances Hodgson Burnett

How can you imprison a girl’s thoughts in an attic? Books are more effective captors than a room could dream of being (because, after all, rooms cannot dream). What she cannot imagine, she can read; and what she cannot experience, she can imagine. Each crack, each break, is turned to gold; and the world is stitched from hands smeared with coal. Her crown was her mind, and the drudge was a princess, made so by a studious nature, an inclination to storytelling, and the kindness that can be found in a sixpence piece.

send me a 📚 if you’d like a poem written on a character from folklore, mythology or classic literature that your blog reminds me of!

it was no problem at all; it was lovely to write, especially as ‘A Little Princess’ was one of my favourite childhood novels!

Perhaps kind thoughts reach people somehow, even through windows and doors and walls. Perhaps you feel a little warm and comforted, and don’t know why, when I am standing here in the cold and hoping you will get well and happy again.

I just put on A Little Princess to have something on in the background and decided to look up who the actress who played Ms. Minchin was, but as I was doing so, I noticed that the actor who played Captain Crewes is Liam Cunningham, the guy who plays Davos in GoT!!!! I’m shockedt! Davos was a straight hottie when he was younger! Not to say he’s not a handsome man still cuz he absolutely is. But dayum! And he looks so much like Jason Isaacs
